World-Class Kayaking Just Outside of Las Vegas

Kayaking is a unique, fun-filled activity for everyone who enjoys the great outdoors. For many people, it's more than just a hobby or a sightseeing opportunity. It's an exhilarating sport that allows them to explore nature while staying fit. Ready for your next (or first?!) kayaking adventure? Where do you think is the best place to go? 

Las Vegas is a fantastic kayaking destination both for newbies and experienced kayakers. It's generally known for its nightlife, desert landscapes, and warm climate, but what many people don’t know is that it's also home to impressive waterways. Let us guide you on your next Las Vegas kayaking trip with friends and family. 

Evolution Expeditions offers the best kayaking tours in Las Vegas and the surrounding areas. We host a variety of tours in various locations. Do you want to explore Emerald Cave, Lake Mead, or Hoover Dam? We provide thrilling excursions you won’t want to miss.

A Kayaking + Nature Trip of a Lifetime

At Evolution Expeditions, we are passionate about exploring nature, going on adventures, and meeting new people. Our team offers a one-of-a-kind experience that will help you relax, unwind, and rediscover the beauty of nature in the most exciting way possible. 

The good news? We don't only offer kayaking tours. We can take you out for a whole day of paddling, hiking, and marveling at the majesty of the canyons, with a delicious lunch, snacks, and refreshments in between. 

From scenic roads, geothermal hot springs, and sauna caves to waterfalls, rock formations, and wildlife encounters, we can take you on an extraordinary, nature-filled trip you won't experience anywhere else.

We’ll Help You Improve Your Kayaking Skills

Kayaking is a popular water activity that uses a double-bladed oar to paddle through the waters while on a small vessel called a kayak. If you haven't paddled before, it can be pretty intimidating! After all, practicing, especially when alone, can be challenging and risky. But just because there are plenty of things to learn doesn't mean it's not worth it.

Beginner paddlers are actually the ones who are up for more exciting challenges, and they always end up as more confident kayakers towards the end of the trip. Since we work with a lot of first-timers and newbies who have only tried it once or twice, we've chosen quick, lightweight kayaks that are equipped with rudders, so paddlers can steer more easily.

Our Experienced Guides Will Keep You Safe and Sound the Entire Tour

Las Vegas is a kayaking destination like no other. But beautiful scenery alone doesn’t lead to fantastic travel experiences. To make the most out of the trip, you need to be with your friends and family, as well as the ones that can show you around, making sure you’re safe the entire time. 

Whether or not your entire group has years of kayaking experience, our guides are here to keep you happy, safe, and comfortable the whole time. Our guides have been paddling professionally and personally for years in Las Vegas and the surrounding areas, so rest assured that they have a vast knowledge of the location’s history, weather patterns, wildlife, and river currents.

Before becoming lead guides, our team members undergo thorough training, including rescue techniques, physical skill tests, and basic river kayaking certifications. They also go through CPR and Wilderness First-Aid training. 

Our guides carry emergency communication devices at all times. Should emergencies arise, you can feel confident that they will be able to assist you right away.

We’ll Teach You the Basics

Don’t know a thing about kayaking? That’s okay with us. We’ll introduce you to all of the most important details you need to know — from how to properly get in and out of the kayak to the correct sitting position.

Moreover, we’ll teach you how to use the paddle, as well as different paddling strokes and safety techniques to help you control your kayak throughout the tour.

Don’t let a lack of experience stop you. We all start at the beginning — and there’s no time like the present.

What if the Kayak Flips Over?

While it doesn't often happen, there’s always a possibility of capsizing due to unforeseen circumstances like strong currents and hidden obstacles. If you are having difficulty paddling and are close to flipping over, our guides will help you get control of your kayak again.

Our guides are fully prepared for these situations and can immediately assist people in getting back on track. Furthermore, our kayaks are stable, and most people, even beginners, make it through the day without any out-of-boat experiences!

When is the Best Time to Schedule a Kayaking Trip? 

Anytime! We run trips all year round. The best thing about kayaking is that it's always in season. You just need to decide where you want to go. Most kayakers schedule their trips based on their paddling experience and the weather conditions they are most comfortable in.
